Rest in Peace, Alexei Cherepanov

Alexei Cherepanov, 19 year old forward for Avangard Omsk and New York Rangers prospect, has died either during or shortly after a KHL game earlier today. He collapsed on the bench, and either then, as he was being transported to the hospital, or upon arrival, Cherepanov's heart stopped. While the link goes to TSN, the New York Rangers' site already has a short statement upon his passing.

This is absolutely terrible - a 19 year old man's heart just stopped, and while involved in doing what he loved. My condolences to his family, friends, teammates, fans, and those who have had their lives touched by him.

Crazy was suggesting that it happened after an accidental collision with Jagr. They later updated and said it wasn't so.

The tidbit about Jagr freaking out puts a pretty intense scene in ones mind though.
